Are you an aspiring young artist looking to take your talents to the next level? Are you considering a career or studying art in college? Is art going to be a lifelong passion and hobby of yours? If so then this course is perfect for you! 

Portfolio Bootcamp is designed for people who are dedicated to their art and looking to take it to the next level.  Using examples and aspects of the AP art curriculum you will learn skills and techniques to take your beautiful pieces to masterpieces. This journey will provide you with a glimpse into the real word of art portfolios, and help you set up the foundation of your portfolio for the future (college admission, art show, personal collection). This course is for those who like to draw, paint, sculpt, build, and take photographs. Would you like to begin assembling an art portfolio for college, impressing your art teacher with five finished pieces of artwork at the start of the school year? We will work on one piece of art a day, creating five finished pieces of work in a week. Using AP Studio Art examples and portfolio-ready pieces, we will talk about what it takes to be prepared for art-oriented college applications. For those interested, we will do a slide room demo to help you learn how to submit your images. Get ready for the next step in developing your art ability at this dynamic camp!
